Are Bourjois Rouge Hi-Tech Lip Tints still available?

Lip tints and stains get quite a bit of love from us. That’s because they’re great for layering under lipstick or coloured gloss as well as brilliant in their own right as a long-lasting, fuss-free way to inject a shot of high-impact colour into your look, and thanks to new offerings from brands like Max Factor and Revlon, they’re easier to come by than ever.

When we write about one of these newcomers, though, there are usually a few forlorn enquiries wondering whatever happened to an old favourite of the genre. Bourjois Rouge Hi-Tech Lip Tints were little pots of water-based loveliness that hit stands in summer 2008, but sadly for their fans were discontinued last year and have disappeared from stores completely over the last few months.

Now, that’s not to say it’s completely impossible to get another fix while you find a replacement product to (hopefully) take its place in your affections. There are several websites that sell discontinued beauty bits like these at discount: you’ll find Rouge Hi-Tech online at Cheap Smells, Fragrance Direct*, The Cosmetic House, and you’ll sometimes get lucky on eBay, too.

Since my chronic procrastination meant that I never actually got around to ticking these babies off my “must try” list, I’m actually now waiting on a few Cheap Smells and eBay deliveries myself…

    Has anyone tried the new Maybelline 24hr lipstick with the balm at the end? I bought one but it was horrible when I wore it, kind of frosted looking.

  • Michelle says:

    Topshop have qite a nice make up range,not sure if you have reviewed it here…anyway they have a lip /cheek tint that is called ‘bitten berry’ and is quite nice!

  • Sherry says:

    I use The Body shop lip and cheek stain. I love it at the moment and will look for another one soon.

  • Fran says:

    @baglady I have 2 and hate both of them!! the gloss is ok but the balm thing sits on my lips so weirdly. will definitely not be using them again

    speaking of products that have been discontinued does anyones boots (in dublin) still stock the no 7 mousse foundation? i heard its being discontinued and need to stock up but its gone from my local boots already :(

  • Baglady says:

    Fran – horrible, aren’t they? Their probably not that new I just noticed them the other day.

  • Fran says:

    oh and forgot to mention the end of one of mine broke on the first use!

  • BerG says:

    These are the original and still the best in my view. Such a pity they discontinued them.
    I managed to stock up from a bargain basked in a chemist as they were coming to the end of the line. Got two for a euro.

    Yep, I’m always one of the people that harps on about these Bourjois pots as soon as lip-tints are mentioned. I just haven’t come across any other lip tints that gave such a great colour pay-off and didn’t dry me poor lips out. Don’t know why they were discontinued (well that musn’t have been selling that well obviously) but everyone I knew who tried them, loved them. Sadface.

    Although, and I see Baglady and Fran have already mentioned this – I bought the Maybelline Super Stay 24 lipstick with balm a couple of weeks ago and I absolutely love it! I either use the balm that comes with it or a lip gloss of my own choosing and and it’s been brilliant for nights out. It’s one of the first ‘super stay’ type lipsticks that I’ve found actually really works. I got mine in 195 (Raspberry shade) and a good few people have complimented me on the colour. Was actually going to see if other people had tried it yet because I am most definitely a fan!

    Baglady and Fran, what shades did you get? I was going to buy more not if there frosted!
